Located near Paddington Station in London, Paddington Works is a disruptive and innovative co-working space that provides stimulating member experiences and events that promote commercial growth and human well-being. It also offers a health-conscious environment that inspires the creation of extraordinary business ideas.

In a modern, vibrant environment, flexible space is an essential ingredient, and working with architects, Threefold Architecture and contractor, Space Paddington, Style was specified to install a DORMA Huppe Variflex moveable wall to section off an auditorium during gatherings, talks, presentations and events.

The manually operated moveable wall quickly closes off the auditorium to provide maximum privacy for events, as members continue to work undisturbed in the surrounding areas thanks to its 57dB Rw acoustic integrity.

Facing into the auditorium the yellow Camira Blazer fabric finish complements the interior design and matches the cushions, while the other side is in white melamine to maintain a light, open atmosphere.

“This is a great example of how a relatively straightforward acoustic, manual moveable wall installation can revolutionise how space is used,” said Julian Sargent, Style’s group managing director.

“When the wall is open, the stepped auditorium is a visible and integral part of the building design and can be used as an informal space where the members can have one to one meetings, or simply relax and have some time away from their desk.

“During events it can be quickly closed off so that they can be run in privacy and allow those not involved to continue with their work without being interrupted.

“Far from just being work and meeting space, this modern environment hosts all sorts of events in the auditorium including music and social gatherings, which is why it’s so important for Paddington Works‘ staff to be able to alter the use of the space each and every day.”

Style is the exclusive UK partners to DORMA Huppe, Skyfold and SWG offering a wide range of manual, semi-automatic and fully automatic moveable wall solutions to meet every requirement and budget.
